These projects illustrate the configuration of experimental apparatuses for witnessing injustices with data.
In contrast to accounts which emphasise the presence of an individual human witness at the scene, Amnesty’s data practices are conspicuously collective and distributed, rendering the systemic scale of injustices at a distance, across space and time.
Amnesty International (AI), international nongovernmental organization (NGO) founded in London on May 28, 1961, that seeks to publicize violations by governments and other entities of rights recognized in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948), especially freedom of speech and of conscience and the right against torture.
AI actively seeks the release of human rights bodies to expand and enforce human rights protections in international law. In the early 21st century the organization consisted of national sections, or offices, in more than 50 countries and some three million individual members, donors, and affiliated activists in more than 150 countries and territories.
